Have you read Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors by Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan? That book absolutely blew my mind when I read it, 20 years ago. The number of behaviors and attributes we share with our ape cousins is--wait for it--mind blowing.

Now, when someone angrily objects "I am not a monkey!", I only laugh and imagine them flinging poop at me while screeching.

I'll have to look out for that, thanks!

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

Science is awesome!
